MUMBAI, Sept. 20, 2013 /CNW/ - Today's global consumers are now demanding food and beverage products that are low in salt and calories, sugar and fats, have added fibre, are sustainably sourced and above all, use natural preservatives. Food and drinks manufacturers struggle to find local and cost effective solutions without compromising on taste or quality.
For this reason, Fi & Hi India is pleased to announce Leatherhead Food Research as their key content partner for Fi & Hi India 2013. The Food ingredients portfolio realises the importance of bringing their customers free, relevant and up to date education sessions with the latest trends and industry information. Together with Leatherhead, Food ingredients India are hosting two new features at the 2013 edition of the show, including the Ask the Expert Zone, which allows visitors to have one-to-one sessions, to ask questions about the food and beverage industry. Another initiative organised in collaboration with Leatherhead is the Discovery Tours which will allow visitors to take self-guided tours through the show, on topics providing specific solutions for health ingredients and sustainability.
Olav Messaling, Brand Director, Food ingredients India added 'Our aim is to offer our customers as much value as possible, so when they leave the show, they not only possess powerful business leads, but also to have a greater understanding of the entire industry. These features not only provide this, but also provide good networking opportunities and easy guidance through the exhibition hall. Leatherhead has fantastic expertise in the food and beverage industry and will be a very insightful and welcomed addition to Fi & Hi India!'
Steve Osborn, Business Innovation Manager to Leatherhead Food Research said: "We are increasingly aware of the growth in the food and beverage industry in India, so we had no hesitation in supporting the Fi & Hi India exhibition. The grand challenges of the food and beverage industry are global, and through the Discovery Tours we hope that visitors will connect with some of the solutions. We will also have Food Innovation and Regulatory experts available on our stand (D29B) for Q&A. This is an exciting market and Leatherhead is delighted to be an integral part of the show."
Fi India is proven to be the most successful food ingredients platform in the entire region for companies to showcase themselves in this vibrant and ever growing market. Over 6,000 attendees will be attending the show, over the 3 days, to unearth new business partners, suppliers and the latest innovations in the marketplace. Attendees at Fi & Hi India are looking for solutions to further develop products in their pipeline, reformulate their existing products and pursue cost controlling solutions and the partnership with Fi & Hi India and Leatherhead, now brings even more value to the show!
